in reply to Editor / IDE Consolidation

Some notes on Open Perl IDE:
  • Platform - Windows
  • Column Select Support - No (I assume this is like rectangular blocking of text?)
  • Notes:
    • Although billed as an IDE, you specify the location to your standard Perl distribution. I use ActiveState Perl.
    • Syntax highlighting, auto-indent.
    • Separate windows for source, console output, error output , breakpoints, variables, modules and callstacks.
  • Opinion - Great for small/medium size Perl programs. I've occasionally encountered glitches when renaming (Save as) programs. I've also had programs that worked fine (no errors/messages) under Unix (update: also ran without problems at the DOS command prompt) but locked up this IDE (particularly those using LWP/HTTP modules).
Also, I might mention TextPad, which is a Windows platform text editor. It has many features that I like, but I mainly use it for HTML source or data editing/viewing. It is Shareware, free to try, $27 USD if you decide to keep. Of the half dozen or so Shareware products I ever purchased this one has probably gotten the most use.
